You can do this in a mixture of ways, from making a few smart investments to looking after yourself a little bit better. Take our advice below, and you’ll and feel fabulous, we guarantee it.

Accessories Options

Are you making the most of accessories? If not, now’s the time to add some to your wardrobe. A beautiful necklace, ring, or scarf can bring an outfit that’s seen the light of day on many occasions back to life. When it comes to accessories, the funkier and more unique they are, the better. So check out your local crafts market; virtually everywhere has one. You’ll be able to support an artist and get a one of a kind item that was made with love. Everyone wins!

Take a Break from the Vices

Sometimes, our look becomes a little dated purely because our skin isn’t able to keep up with the fabulousness of our clothes. If we’ve had too many late nights, or smoke, or just generally aren’t eating as well as we should be, then our skin will have a hard time looking its radiant best. It’s not always that fun to say no to a night out with your friends, though, so don’t - it’s a crazy idea, but it is possible to go out and only have one or two glasses of wine, or indeed no alcoholic drinks at all. Your skin and outfits will thank you.

Dress From the Bottom Up

People have in their head that it’s the top their wearing that’s the most important, because that’s what’s most likely to be in a person’s line of vision. But actually, this isn’t true. If your bottom half is on point, then the upper half will take care of itself. Get a pair of Wonders Shoes by Step Ahead Shoes, check out some fine trousers, skirts, and jeans, and you’ll be on your way to having a fresh, smart look. All of a sudden, all those old tops that have been hiding in your closet might be given a new lease of life.

Reinvent Your Old Threads

And talking about your old items of clothing, have you ever thought about injecting a bit of style back into them on your own terms? People are somewhat adverse to doing DIY projects with their clothes, but they’re super simple. And in any case, if you’re only going to throw out the item anyway, then what have you got to lose? You might just find that you’ve created a new and funky item that you love, all because you took a little bit of time to work on it.

Hit the Salon

You might have your hair and makeup routine locked down, but let’s be honest here, is it really as good as what they can do in the salon? We all know that feeling when we leave a professional place with our hair and makeup looking perfect: we feel invincible. If you have a big night coming up, or just want to treat yourself, then book yourself in for treatment.

Be Slightly Bolder

If there’s one thing that too many of us are guilty of, it’s playing it safe when it comes to colors. We have no problem being a little bit daring, but stick to the same old handful of shades! Let’s change that. Next time you’re looking for an item of clothing that’ll look fantastic on a night out, look at being a little bolder with your color options.

Carry Yourself Well

Finally, don’t forget the power of carrying yourself well! People who walk with confidence are somehow able to make themselves look radiant and attractive, even if their clothes aren’t all that much. Wondering how you can get confidence? Well yeah, it’s a tough one - but you can start by being true to yourself, working on reaching your goals, and believing in yourself. You’ve got this!


It’s always possible to mix up our appearance and surprise people a little, and none of them are particularly hard work, either. Work on making the small changes we’ve outlined above, and you’ll be on your way to being a newer, better version of yourself in no time. And when you get bored of that look, you can do it all over again!
